I have worked with clients with diagnoses of psychosis, and part of my training included work on a psychiatric ward. As a psychotherapist I don’t diagnose nor prescribe, but I can provide support to explore your experience of psychosis and how you manage it.
I understand psychosis as partly physical, partly due to environmental pressures, and partly caused by past trauma or difficult events. I also believe there is often a spiritual aspect to psychosis which can go unrecognised. The standard medical response focusses on repressing symptoms rather than exploring either causes or the nature of the experience itself. For an alternative look at psychosis you might find the documentary ‘Crazywise’ interesting, the trailer for which you can find here.
